Description


In this vibrant bilingual picture book biography of musician Tito Puente, readers will dance along to the beat of this mambo king's life. Award-winning author-illustrator duo Monica Brown and Rafael Lopez bring the remarkable story of this talented legend to life.

Tito Puente loved banging pots and pans as a child, but what he really dreamed of was having his own band one day. From Spanish Harlem to the Grammy Awards--and all the beats in between--this is the true story of a boy whose passion for music turned him into the "King of Mambo."
